LWC, Chamber host Postsecondary Education meeting today

Jim Applegate will be guest speaker at LWC Dining Center at 11:45 event

To Columbia Adair County Chamber Members,

Just a reminder of Tuesday's meeting, November 28 at 11:45 AM at the Lindsey Wilson College Dining Center for an important community meeting on Postsecondary Education. Jim Applegate, Vice President of Academic Affairs Council on Postsecondary Education will be our guest speaker. He will discuss the challenges we face in Adair County and Kentucky's quest for education excellence, including statewide efforts to get more of our citizens through high school, into college and graduating with degrees.

As you know in 1977, Kentucky passed comprehensive higher education reform legislation that set aggressive goals for the Commonwealth, including a mandate that by 2020 the State raise the educational level of its citizens to at least the national average in order to improve economic competitiveness and the quality of life.

The Council on Postsecondary Education are going to different areas of the State to have these Community meetings.There's been really good attendance at every meetingthey have had. Let's have a good crowd so we can show them that Adair Count is a Community that is concerned about higher education.

This is a joint project of Lindsey Wilson College and the Chamber of Commerce.

If you want to eat lunch, go directly through the cafeteria line, and come to the room reserved for the meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Sue Stivers
Executive Director, Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Commission
